i'm with selkie, pac, and breezy. but there are variables.

the real decision for me would be how it smelled when the package was opened. if it smelled like nothing, or like the way good pork smells, i would have no problem cooking and serving it to my family.

if it smelled off in any way, i'd chuck it.

i wonder what the servsafe regulations were before the days of refrigeration? or in countries with no power infrastructure? you'd have to slaughter an animal and cook it before it hit the ground.

Man, down in the Dominican, some vendors display their meat out on a plywood table on the street in the sun. I can imagine that the table doesn't get much in terms of sterilization at the end of each day either. I guess they have developed immunities to the bacteria, but it is still nasty looking. And smelling. I walked by a few meat vendors and I have to say it almost made me ralph.

I don't think it is any coincidence that life expectancy in those areas and times is/was much lower than in areas that practice safe food handling.

Life expectancy was low during the Ice Age, too. When everything was frozen.
Just sayin'.
